AMERICAN HISTORY QUESTIONS 2 American History Questions The U.S history from 1870-1890 after civil wars was called the period of The Gilded Age. It was given that name because Mark Twain and Charles Duddley Warner wrote a story titled The Gilded Age. U.S economy and social changes grew and changed rapidly. One of the major events introduced in that era was Congress the passing of the Pendleton Act in 1883. This act created a federal service system that helped to eliminate political patronage. The key role was to create a competent governmental bureaucracy and also to cut down the influence of outside money on U.S government. Native Americans who were the Indians faced a lot of challenges from white settlers. Indians were divided into tribe’s bands of around 500 members; they were made to be nomads by Spanish explorers. In 1851, the U.S government introduced a policy that was geared to concentrate Indians and give white settlers the most productive lands (Drori & Weizmann, 2007).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
